Nordic Ice Beanie

Nordic Ice Beanie

JUNE 21, 2020

crochet hat free crochet pattern

This Nordic Ice Beanie is made using worsted weight yarn (Lion Brand's Feels Like Butta in Ice and White) and a G 4mm crochet hook. The ribbing is worked flat and then joined in the round. The hat is then worked in the round with two rounds of half double crochet (hdc) followed by a round of hdc puff stitches. You can change colors like I did or make the hat in one solid color. You also have the option of leaving the pom pom off (I just happen to love the look of poms) if you prefer that look. I hope you enjoy making this crochet beanie as much as I did!

I love ♥ when you guys share pictures and tag me. It's pretty amazing to see you guys crocheting my designs, especially when you guys add your own creative twists. Lots of talent and creativity out there! Tag me on Instagram (lovable_loops) or Facebook to share your pictures and I'll share your photo to my stories!

Sew the top of the hat shut by weaving your yarn back and forth (see arrows) around the entire opening.

Gently  pull on the yarn to pull the stitches together to close the the top. Be careful not to rip the yarn.

You will still have a small opening. Simply sew it shut.
